around medicare payments in context of the health care vote. maybe they thought there's some graft there, there's some corruption and we'll appoint ourselves to go uncover it. >> allen raymond, the author of "how to rig an election" with unique experience on the manipulation of phone systems for political gain. it's valuable to have your insight. thanks very much for joining us. >> you're welcome. thanks for having me. >>> i should note one political connection here. there is one sort of strange but direct political connection here for these four men arrested in this case. the father of one of them i noted is an acting u.s. attorney in louisiana. and that acting u.s. attorney in louisiana only has that job right now because republican senator david vitter put a hold on the nominee to replace that u.s. attorney. so, again, we don't have any idea if connections like that count as political connections, that count as things that are suspicious in the case of an alleged crime like this. but at this point we know very little about the motivations behind this crime and behind -- i guess we kno
lieberman and senator nelson. the other thing is to start over again and add medicare, add 55-year-olds up to medicare, which is what the senate was thinking about doing in the first place. there's a big advantage if you do that. you don't get universal insurance and insurance reform, but the senate bill has very little reform in it anyway. you get per insured rate away who can't get it because they're over 55. i think that kind of approach is the kind of approach i would use. get it done, have it easy to understand. the expansion of medicare is easy to understand. we can run it through reconciliation pretty quickly. you don't have a choice. if you're going to get anything done in the senate from this point on, it's going to be through reconciliation. >> governor dean, thank you very much. we have to take a quick break right now, and we'll be checking in with scott brown's headquarters. hevy tahoe, south on i-75, near exit 5. we're on it. onstar, we may have that tahoe. ok, i'll flash the lights. we got it. it's in the clear. i'm sending a signal to cut the power. we got him. mr. ross, the
, lower your costs -- all the insurance reforms. we're going to lower the cost of medicare and medicaid and it won't cost anybody anything. that's great politics. it's just not true. so, there's got to be some test of realism in any of these proposals. mine included. i've got to hold myself accountable and i guarantee the american people will hold me accountable if what i'm selling doesn't actually deliver. >> mr. president, a point of clarification. what's in the book are all the proposals that -- >> i understand. i've read your bills. >> so, rest assured the summary document you received is backed up by the detailed legislation that speaker pelosi and your administration have been busy ignoring for 12 months. >> hold on. no, no, no, no. hold on a second, yes. you know, mike -- i've read your legislation. i mean, i take a look at this stuff. and the good ideas, we take. but here's the thing, here's the thing i guess that all of us have to be mindful of. it can't be all or nothing, one way or the other. all right? you, you -- what i mean by that is this. if we put together a stimulus pa
people get what they pay for, strengthening medicare, making sure we're lowering health care costs for small businesses and individuals. we're going to make sure we move forward on a jobs bill, financial services reform, holding the banks accountable, all of the things that need to get done. but right now, given the rules of the senate, they can actually stop everything. and so we'll see. we will see. and i am -- all i can say is i'm hopeful that colleagues that we've been able to work with in the past will come forward and work with us. because too many people in this country are hurting. and we're going to continue to fight for them. and i have to tell you, coming from the great state of michigan, nobody is hurting more than the folks in my state. and i'm going to continue to fight for that agenda for them. and, hopefully, we're going to be able to move this forward. >> democratic senator debbie stabenow of michigan, thank you for your time tonight. i appreciate your optimism about the republicans potentially turning around on this. if they don't, we'd love to have you back for c
in social security and medicare. and they achieved that. this thing now fits back in its proper place in a larger economic program. and takes on, i think, a very different hue in light of the fact the senate didn't go forward with conrad greg and the president said i'm going to do something by executive order. advisory commission does not have the same power to coerce the congress of that the legislative statutory commission would have had. >> fascinating observation. james galbraith, economist at the you don't know of texas. thanks for that and your time tonight. >> pleasure. >>> the president obama was in a position to discuss the state of the economy in his first state of the union address to the men and women that voted him into office. huge groundswell of support from the liberal base. progressive reaction to his agenda tonight with a late breaking develop many on the arrest of james o'keefe and denial that any attempt was made by he and his fellow perpetrators to even tamper with the phones of senator landrieu. details next on "countdown." si. these are actual farmers who raise
on the show that maybe this health reform should be simplified into a medicare expansion and that could be passed 51 votes and a reconciliation proposal in. >> i don't you'll get that on something as controversial as that from the senate. on the political side, i agree. one thing i think people should be clear on. there's no walking away from the bill. democrats own it. both chambers house and senate have vos h. voted for it. if this goes down, if it fails, all democrats have in 2010 is a failure. if it wins, if they still manage to pass it, they do get a day of headlines saying, historic headline and go into 2010 with something they can sell as a true accomplishment. i can't understand how anyone on the democratic side of the aisle would see the politics different than that. one thing you do get a sense of talking from them i'm not sympathetic to is just exhaustion. this is giving a lot of people an opportunity to give up. they're tired of angry town halls and angry constituents and tired of fighting with republicans and going on sunday shows, talking about things they care about. do
amendment doesn't allow for health care of every citizen in the country? do you believe medicare and social security and medicaid is socialism? i think these questions need to be driven to them. it needs to be put to them. then as we move toward the general elections -- that's in a primary contest. i'd get those candidates out there now defining these people as to where they stand. and then secondly, in the general election, i think that driving these substantive issues, as we create jobs -- and even there, you know, i want to see republicans, what they're going to say when it comes time to cast a vote to create jobs in america. you know, when we have an emergency in this country like flood -- flooding or hurricane disasters, we consider a disaster when 15 million american bread winners don't have a job, i consider that a disaster, one that has to be responded to by the federal government. let them choose on whose side are they on. trying to get families back to work in america or taking care of big business? that's going to be an interesting choice. >> democratic senator robert menendez of
